Morocco coach Halilhodžić blasts Ziyech behaviour in camp: 'I will not tolerate him'

Hakim Ziyech was a surprise absentee as Morocco named their 24-man squad for their World Cup qualifiers during the international break.

There were rumours of a rift with the manager Vahid Halilhodžić, which have now been confirmed by the coach himself who hasn't held back in criticizing the Chelsea man.

According to L'Equipe journalist Hanif Ben Berkane, he said: "He [Ziyech] wasn't disciplined during the last two national team camps, he shied away from training.

"He didn't look like the player who'd fought to represent his country at World Cup [in 2018].

"For the first time in my career as a coach I've seen a national team player who doesn't want to train, who pretends to be injured although the tests show otherwise. I won't tolerate this behaviour while I'm here."

These are strong words to say to the media about your team's talisman and it remains to be seen how Ziyech will respond to this tirade.
